CND FOR LIBERTINE SPRING/SUMMER 2016
Inspired by rebellious German artist, Blinky Palermo, the clothing and nails featured high-key color in neat, precise patterns. The outcome of this inventive fashion partnership was an irreverent art show – loud yet refined.
The nails were so playful and really transitioned into the collection. It's always wonderful to play up your nails its apart of your outfit and should steal the show as well.
“Curating this collection with Libertine’s Johnson Hartig was a truly collaborative process,” said CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold. “His inspiration this season could not have been more in line with CND’s Spring 2016 trend story, which is all about art redesigned and repurposed. Blinky Palermo was the ultimate art vandal, and Johnson is THE expert at remastering the classics – the result on the runway was pure artistic expression.”
Nails were hand painted to create distinctive styles on the runway.
• “Blinky Blocks”: These dual-toned color-blocked nails featured clean lines and contrasting colors.
• “Checkmate”: A bright checkerboard pattern set against a white base made for a restrained pop art effect.
• “Bad Penny”: Based on a metallic rose gold shade from the upcoming Spring 2016 color collection, and adorned with copper foil and a mosaic of miniature pennies, these monochromatic nails were an invaluable statement piece.
• “Veronica”: These expensive-looking nails were completely encrusted with mirrored glass-cut baguettes in various sizes, a reflection of the embellished garments.
